I imagine they decided to bury him at sea when they dusted of the "What to do when you kill Bin Laden, by Colin Powell" manual and skipped to the end. It just seems like the kind of thing someone thought up a while ago as the least-bad solution.
And what better solution for his body? Everest and Antarctica are fun mental images, but hauling his corpse up everest or across the arctic ice shelves would be time consuming and expensive, not to mention internationally controversial (I'm sure the Nepalese and Chinese governments would have a few choice words about interring the world's most wanted terrorist in their territory).
... And Gitmo? Are you -trying- to piss off the large portions of the middle east, Africa and Indonesia that saw him as a freedom fighter?
The body was baggage, and nobody wanted to have to put it on ice to ferry it somewhere around the world. I see no problem with his body being Cthulhu-treats.
The ship would have had a freezer for bodies.
